About the style: Beatrice has been adjusted this season for a better fit, giving extra room in the bust and arm. With a high elegant front and a v-neck back, she is also fully lined for luxury and added warmth in winter. She fastens with a tie waist and as always features our deep Palava pockets. In short Beatrice is a simple, flattering shape to wear that really draws attention to our beautiful prints. Made by Satnam and his team in our little London factory.
About the Print: The Birch is a pioneer species and was one of the first trees to colonise Great Britain after the last ice age forming woodland.
We're particularly fascinated about Birch sap - it's slightly sweet, pure water. (if you give it a try, think about sugar while drinking it..it helps!). Birch sap can only be collected when the sap is rising in early Spring, usually the first two weeks in March, but this varies depending on the weather conditions. Birch sap contains Betulin and Betulenic acid which are both great at boosting the immune system in humans. Tests have found that it can help the immune system recognise cancer cells and destroy them helping in the fight against cancer.
The bark can be soaked in water and formed into a cast for broken bones. The bark can also be carefully peeled off to create fire lighters and does not harm the tree. At this time of year, there are four ingredients we can get from birch trees: tea from the twigs; spice; flour from the inner bark; syrup from the sap.
